As far as VL turbo's go the majority choose to stick to an auto transmission so it was good to see Nigel's giving his manaul box some stick at Calder Park. The VL Commodore is powered by a D'Annello Performance Nissan RB25/30 twin cam turbo six combination that makes big power on pump fuel. Nigel was testing a new 2-step / flat shift setup and the Holden certainly showed promise going 10.04 at 140mph and 113mph to mid track.

the guys to run a lot quicker yet.

Bill's Nissan was out once again at Calder Park but this time out the guys
were chasing an ignition gremlin. The S15 has gone as fast as 140mph from
